"Buy a Match 6 lottery ticket every day until you win the lottery. (In a Match 6 lottery, a player chooses 6 different numbers from the set {1, 2, 3, ..., 44}. A lottery representative draws 6 different numbers from this set. To win, the player must match all 6 numbers, in any order.) Find the probability that X = 4 (it takes 4 tickets to win the lottery)"

==> Okay, I understand how to find the probability that X = 4, but what I don't get is how to find the probability p = ?. I know it probably involves calculating with factorials, but how exactly do you go about doing it? Thank you!!
